The current “feminist” movement to destroy anything masculine has perverted a movement once based on equality.
Instead of choice, the current “woman’s movement” demands that women do what they are told, as long as their doing what feminists tell them to do.
That’s why one author and activist just issued a stark warning about what modern day “feminists” are trying to achieve.
Today’s feminists insist that stay-at-home moms and wives are an embarrassment to womanhood.
Their theory is that if more women had “fair” opportunities and could earn as much as men, no woman would actually choose to stay home.
Even leading politicians across the globe have fallen into this trap.
Just a few years ago, for example, French President Emmanuel Macron said educated women don’t have large families.
And American politicians as varied as Mitt Romney and Barack Obama have attacked stay-at-home moms.
Author and activist Elizabeth Broadbent, writing in Scary Mommy, summed up the current feminist view of stay-at-home moms in an article titled “How Feminism Has Left SAHMs Behind.”
In the article, Broadbent tells the story of Nell, who informed her graduate English class she was leaving school to “drop out, have babies, and run an organic farm.”
Broadbent went on to explain how appalled they all were. That wasn’t feminism to them, in their minds she said, “Nell was violating every tenet of feminism we’d ever been taught.”
Among those feminist tenets, according to Broadbent were views like, you’re only worth the work you produce; use the talent you have; shatter glass ceilings; do anything a man can do; and, produce work on par with a man’s.
Staying home and having babies did not, of course, fit this definition.
Broadbent would follow Nell into the abyss by dropping out of her Ph.D. program to stay home with her son.
And she has harsh words for the modern feminist movement.
“Like the rest of the stay-at-home moms I know, feminism has left me behind. Feminism doesn’t see our child-rearing, much less all that goes with it, as valuable. There is no glory, no glass ceiling in poo-wiping, or mac and cheese cooking, or alphabet-teaching. There isn’t even value in breastfeeding, which you’d think would be vaunted in feminist circles for using the female body for something only women can do.”
To be clear, Broadbent was, and still is, a feminist. But a feminist who believes in, well, feminism. The right of a woman to choose her education, career, and yes, child rearing and being a stay-at-home mom.
Yet the “feminazis” persist, insisting that women like Broadbent are just falling prey to patriarchal privilege and are not truly free.
In fact, at this month’s sparsely attended “Women’s March,” a big part of the agenda was to make sure the attendees knew that women cannot be truly “free” unless they are defeating men at every turn and advancing feminism.
To these modern day “feminists,” there are no free stay-at-home-moms.
But in reality, these feminazis are destroying womanhood, motherhood, and the very feminist movement they claim to represent.
